Joe Francis Runs Free

Figurative and literal anal-penetration victim and Girls Gone Wild producer Joe Francis has beaten 34 of the "more than 40" felony and misdemeanor charges against him for videotaping minors having real and/or simulated sex. "Hundreds of hours" of damning tape seized from Francis's homes and plane were suppressed from evidence because of improper search warrants; a few counts remain on the docket due to potential testimony from the videographer and photographer in question. So other than a few fines and community service, things are looking good for Joe. Perhaps he'll go beat up a reporter to celebrate!
